No offense, but those guys would represent China as much as some Venezuelan or Cuban guy would represent the USA, because they are from the American continent.
1. Zhang Tiequan and his 1-3 record is likely cut.
2. Cung Le main evented the "china" event in Macau
3. Realistically MW division has 3 Asians in the top 15, I would be shocked shocked if they don't go with any of them for some guys that never fought in the UFC.
